Sheep Shearing Show

 

Sheep Shearing Show

Daily show at 2pm (April to Oct)

Our daily sheep show combines fun and laughter with the traditional and challenging skill of sheep shearing. Our expert shepherds share the secrets of the world’s most versatile fibre while demonstrating how we shear a sheep.

Why do we shear sheep

All adult sheep are sheared once a year for welfare reasons.  It allows them to keep cool in summer, helps them avoid fly strike and stops them becoming cast (stuck on their backs). It also stops them from getting caught in brambles and bushes.
